OK, here's my problem. My air conditioner is dead. All of my coolant keeps leaking out. I tried to buy one of those bottles of leak stop, but it only worked for a couple months. After a visit with my mechanic (and $50 later) he told me that my evaporator (on the firewall?) appears to be leaking. Now I know I could have him fix it but that seems a bit expensive for something that is just an unnecessary convenience. I should be able to do it myself. My question is this: My Haynes book gives me vague (to say the least) instructions about evaporator removal. Has anyone done this? If so could they offer me some advice? I suppose the best case would be if there was a writeup somewhere. I messed around a little bit today and determined that the lower line into the evaporator will be a major pain in the butt. Any incite would be greatly appreciated. Second question: Once it's out, is their any possibility of having it repaired? I'm the type of person who believes in duct tape and chewing gum. A friend mentioned that I might be able to take it to a radiator shop and have them plug the hole. Napa quoted me $120 for a new one. Thanks in advance for your help.
